    Dr. B is not only brilliant, he is kind, caring and explains your surgery to you, even drawing pictures. I had to have a parathyroid gland removed which is basically cutting your neck open! I was scared but he actually stopped by before and after my surgery. This was my 3rd in 3 years. I never saw the other doctors before or after. Like I was a piece of meat. GOD really blessed this talented man and I was lucky to find him

    My surgery, a completely 'petrified gall bladder' without the normal pain associated with mal-functioning gall bladders was rapidly and successfully extracted several years ago. The operation was complicated by the large, calcified condition of the gall bladder but regardless, the operation and post recovery process were swift, comfortable and long lasting, e.g. no complications or problems thereafter. His skill is much appreciated; his staff, professional at every level. RLF
